Are you able to walk into every audition room with practical strategies that give you the ease, confidence, and agency to fully bring YOURSELF to the work (and not do your best auditions in the car on your way home)?

If not…

The Saturday On-Camera Audition Lab offers you an approach that will revolutionize your audition practice, giving you the tools to push past nerves, uncertainty, and self-consciousness, and making sure you bring the most valuable thing you have to offer into the room (or on a self-tape): YOU.

Over the course of this 8-week lab, award-winning actor and BGB Master Teacher, Shane Connor, will guide you to hone in on your authentic voice and all the power YOU hold. You’ll explore the work right from where YOU are now, and acquire practical tools to bring your boldest, truest, most joyful self to your auditions and self-tapes. This is fun dammit! Let’s discover that again. Together.


The On-Camera Audition Lab introduces you to a whole new way of experiencing your audition practice.

The Work

In these 8 weeks, you’ll work mostly on-camera, deeply knowing who you are in any given scene. You’ll get looser, more specific, more engaged in the story, and bring your authentic voice to any material in the most immediate, present way possible. You’ll dig in each week, letting go of limiting beliefs about auditioning, and start to bring your unique, specific point of view to your audition and on-camera work.

You’ll work with different material each week- some scenes you bring in, some are assigned. You’ll explore pieces from film and television scripts- in different genres and forms- from co-stars to leading roles. You’ll get an intensive on-camera practice every week. Your clips will be sent to you after each class via Dropbox to continue your exploration.

From Shane:

There is no scene, there is simply an opening moment. Build the right history, ask the right questions, forget about the answers, they’ll take care of themselves, live with the question… let go and commit to the opening moment, fully, wholly, truly and simply- and then- anything can happen. The simplest and hardest necessity of any art form, is to let go.

Commit to life, everyday life, in the same way, and therein lies your practice, your art.

In these 8 weeks we learn practical, tangible skills that allow you to take this into the audition room, and onto set.
